    Hey everyone,

    I used PCs until I got my iMac G5 a year ago, and I'm still learning a thing or two about Macs. I typically use it for video editing.

    My question is, is there anything I should be concerned about or anything I should do to manage my Mac's performance?

    I know that nearly every PC I've used broke down after a year, probably from spyware and viruses.

    I'm considering reformatting the hardrive to make sure performance is running at full capacity.

    A good utility for keeping your mac healthy (well two) are:
    1.Onyx: A tool that runs scripts cleans caches and does regular matenance.
    It can be found HERE

    2. Cocktail: does basically the same things as onyx, but constantly reminds you to purchase it. Thats why I like onyx better, but either one gets 'er done.
    Cocktail Can be found HERE

    Don't do anything. Macs take care of themselves.

    Just sit back and enjoy. :)
